Thompson: July 20-21, 2018 Event Info

Post by dinoracer » Mon Jul 16, 2018 9:15 pm

Hi COMer’s!!

Here is some important info regarding the event this week:

- The garages are at capacity (rented from COM directly for this event.) There is a waiting list. If you want to be added to this list or have requested a garage and are not going to make the event, please contact the Chief of Garages Scott Rosnick ( ASAP; or see the registrar at the event for any last-minute openings or cancelations (but don’t get your hopes high.)

- The first four garage spots are reserved for COM staff. Tech may run through one of those bays, keep an ear out for any announcements.

- Keep an eye on the COM app for updates throughout the event....turn your notifications on.

- Entry on Thursday evening is after 6:00PM. 4 or 5 of the event organizers will have preference, so please do not block the entrance gate. The registrar may or may not be doing a short session, so be prepared to register in the morning if he is not around. Tech Might be available as well if Nelson can make it Thursday night, but do not expect it to be so.

- Late entry and camping is allowed. If the main gate is closed, stay there with your lights on, and security will come and let you in.

- You should be able to enter at any time (surely any time after 6:00 AM). Garages will be open at 6:00 AM. Check your entry email for registration and tech times.

- Sound must be limited to less than 103 db. If you are black flagged for sound, you get one chance to fix it. No refunds for failing sound. No race engines may be started before 8AM.

- No smoking in the garages or hot pits. No fueling in the garage. No electric cords across vehicle pathways. There are a bunch of other common-sense rules written into our contract that I’m not going to repeat here. Use your head please.

- A Dunkin Donuts van will be at the track from 7:30AM to about 11:00 AM with coffee and food.

- The Thompson Club restaurant will be open until 9:00 PM. If you plan to go after the track closes, please go around to the other parking location so they can close and lock the main gate. There is a great ice cream stand there as well.

- The food concession will be open 1100AM to 400PM for your dining pleasure.

- Gas is available 24/7, credit card/debit card only. Please do not block access to the gas pumps as others may be waiting.

- Pets must be leashed, and please keep track of your children, cars will be moving all over the paddock.

- Travel around the garages is counter clock wise, keep the garages on the left.

- An ATM is available in the Pro Shop. The Pro shop will be open generally 8-4 Friday, possibly Saturday.

- Operation of drones is prohibited on TSMP property.

- Your RFID timing cards should be on the PASSENGER side of your car.

- Showers are available in the old oval buildings. Ask for directions when at the track.

If there are any questions, post them here and we will try to give timely responses.

See you there!

Since we are not currently being fed by Chef Bob Brooks we would like pilot a new tradition - the COMSCC potluck BBQ. We want to start with a casual test of the idea before making it an official event feature ("soft launch").

This Friday evening at Thompson right after track activities, everybody is invited to join for a nice casual potluck meal together. A group of community grills is expected. Please bring anything you want to share. The location of party central will be announced at the drivers meeting Friday morning.

The potluck is being coordinated by Matt Daniels & Rebecca Harvey. Your suggestions and feedback are very welcome. Please contact us through the messenger in the COM Mobile Application.
